My nephew is purchasing a new build apartment in Ilfracombe with a mortgage from Lloyds. His solicitor has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?
The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Lloyds conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Ilfracombe for our house purchase. Our financial adviser has since notified us that our bank Santander won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?
A decade ago most mortgage companies had a different appetite for risk. Almost all Ilfracombe conveyancing firms would have been on many lender panels. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 conducted a thematic investigation into mortgage fraud which come to the conclusion: mortgage lenders should know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, lenders have regularly sought more data from law firms about their operations and the individuals who work for them as well as establishing certain criteria such a completing on a minimum amount of conveyancing. Many Ilfracombe conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have a 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Ilfracombe is amongst the many areas where the lawyers we list are are approved Santander.

Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Ilfracombe
Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Ilfracombe I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Ilfracombe in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan that many years will be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
